Medicaid Expansion May Be Months Away

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享It may take several months before Governor Bill Walker is able to make good on his promise to expand Medicaid in Alaska… Gov. Walker: “Only 22 other states have not accepted expanded Medicaid and here’s how that helps the cost of healthcare in Alaska: those, whatever thousands of numbers there are, those people receive medical care through the emergency room, and we pay for that on our premiums. So you want to lower the premiums in Alaska, start covering those 30 or 40,000 people that are receiving healthcare at our expense.” The Governor’s new health commissioner, Valerie Davidson, said it could be mid-summer before she’ll feel confident enrolling more Alaskans in Medicaid. Davidson cited eligibility and payment complications that have plagued the system. She says the issues have been commonplace since the new payment system went live in 2013. Walker’s administration also needs legislative approval to receive and use the federal dollars that support the expanded coverage.last_img read more

He also ran for 39 yards on eight carries and scored a touchdown.The Cowboys improved to 10-1. The Redskins dropped to 6-4-1.“We’re just having fun,” Prescott told reporters after the game. “We’re not waiting for someone to make a play. Wherever the ball goes, that person is ready to make a play. They want to be the one who goes and scores, and we expect to score a touchdown every play. Nothing we do surprises us.”Prescott completed a 10-yard pass to Terrance Williams give the Cowboys a 17-3 lead in the second quarter. The pass capped a six-play, 55-yard drive.After Washington cut the lead to 17-12 in the third quarter, Prescott scored on a 6-yard run to cap a seven-play, 75-yard drive.With the Cowboys leading 24-19 and facing a third-and-9 from the Redskins 27, Prescott fired a 26-yard to Dez Bryant.

They are phenomenal players, and they are extremely blessed. We just want to be there for them. They’re great.”Washington cut the lead to five with 1:53 left. But Prescott completed an 8-yard pass to Cole Beasley for a first down.

Tide set for strong finish after growing pains

first_imgTUSCALOOSA – A midseason lull was overcome, and a different Alabama football team emerged.The third-ranked Crimson Tide evolved into a brotherhood in the last month of the season.It was needed situation for this group to remain national championship contenders.Alabama (7-1, 4-1) lost a rare early season game at Ole Miss, but then survive a one-point game at Arkansas the following week.“I think we became more of a team in the fourth quarter of the Arkansas game,” receiver Amari Cooper said. “We all came together. We were excited after big plays. From that point on we just kept getting better.”The Crimson Tide then showed its potential in a blowout of Texas A&M at home and then took the success on the road at Tennessee to win a rivalry game.Now Alabama has a bye week to rest and refocus for a challenging finish. There’s one more road game, Nov. 8 at No. 16 LSU, and then the regular season ends at home against No. 1 Mississippi State, Western Carolina and No. 4 Auburn.“This team is getting better and better every week,” quarterback Blake Sims said. “We are becoming even closer. We want to play hard for each other. The coaches fight for each other. We want to play harder for them.”If the Crimson Tide can get through the final four-game gauntlet, it should be ready for an SEC Championship Game and potential College Football Playoff.“It just shows how tough this conference is,” cornerback Cyrus Jones said. “Anybody can be beat any week. We just have to practice well and be prepared be ready to come to play.”Alabama players created a solid bond in the offseason, and there was potential. However, the easy early schedule wasn’t a true test of character.SEC opponents were more difficult and exposed flaws. The Ole Miss loss grabbed their attention The problem wasn’t physical. And the mental mistakes could be fixed. It was the emotional investment that had to be cashed in. When that happened, that’s when the team bond formed.And the loss also relieved pressure. The Crimson Tide doesn’t need to be perfect this year. The new four-team College Football Playoff allows for second chances.“We just fight adversity,” safety Landon Collins said. “Stuff happens. They are going to make big plays and we are going to make big plays. We just continue fighting to come out with a win.”Alabama’s change wasn’t just learning to play harder in a tight game. Players enhanced their work habits in practice to be ready to win a tough game.They learned to be better prepared.“The energy we bring every day is better,” center Ryan Kelly said. “Practice is more fun. At the beginning of the year it felt like a job at times. I think sometimes when you take a step back you get better and better each week. That’s what we did after Ole Miss. We are not worrying about losing anymore.”The Crimson Tide practice today, Wednesday and Thursday this week and will take the weekend off. Saban found that extra time off at this time of year helps more than just one day.Fundamentals will be mostly revisited during the week, while younger players will get extra work.Saban also plans to work on the details this week that will help the team finish strong. He’s pushing consistency more than ever.“We have a team that’s up and down a little bit,” Saban said. “We struggled a little bit at Arkansas and played great against Texas A&M. We played great at times against Tennessee and so-so at times. I think consistency in performance will be the key to being successful down the road. That’s something all our players need to understand. We need to play Alabama football on a more consistent basis. That’s something everybody has to be committed to.”last_img read more

Photo/Michael BankaLudington looked shaky and dropped the first set to the host Crusaders, and seemed to be in danger of losing their first conference match of the season.But the Orioles rallied and won the next three sets to seal a 3-1 victory and take over first place in the Lakes 8.Ludington is now 4-0 in the conference while Muskegon Catholic and Western Michigan Christian are 3-1.Maltbie played a huge role in the comeback for Ludington. She led her team with 13 kills, and saved her best play for the fourth and final set.She had three big kills down the stretch, added a huge block of MCC star Zoie Price at the net, and had three crucial service points.That’s the kind of season Maltbie is having, according to Ludington Coach Theresa Shoop.“She is absolutely a take-charge kid,” said Shoop, whose team is trying to win its second conference title in a row. “She was second-team All-Conference last year, and she has a goal of making first team this year. She really lit it up at the net tonight. That was probably the best I’ve seen her play all season.”The first set belonged to Muskegon Catholic, which clung to a 15-14 lead then pulled away for a 25-18 victory.Ludington rebounded with an easy 25-14 win in the second set, after rallying from an early 8-4 deficit.Calvin’Nae Simmons blocks the shot of Ludington’s Tori Clancy. Photo/Michael BankaThe crucial third set was tight most of the way, with the score tied at 5-5, 6-6, 8-8, 9-9, 10-10, 11-11, 14-14, 16-16 and 17-17.But the Orioles pulled away down the stretch, winning 25-20. Maltbie and Allison Morse brought their team within a point of the set victory when they combined for a block of Price at the net, then Maltbie sealed things up with a big kill.MCC grabbed a 5-1 lead in the fourth set, Ludington rallied and pulled ahead 9-5, then the teams were tied 14-14, with MCC needing the win to keep the match alive.But Ludington took control again when it mattered the most, winning 11 of the final 15 points to end the match.“We were just kind of going through the motions (in the first set), but in the last three we got more involved, mentally and physically,” Shoop said.Shoop said she had a few comments for her team after the bad first set, but did not raise her voice.“I don’t really yell too much – I cheer a lot,” she said. “I will yell tomorrow in practice. They already know at this point of the year the things we need to work on.”Kennedy Kirby finished with nine kills for Ludington, Courtney Gerovac had 20 assists, Mackenzie Luce had 11 digs and Randi Stone served three aces.Muskegon Catholic hurt itself with unforced errors, particularly in the last three sets when the match slipped away.“We definitely let the mental errors kind of overtake us,” said MCC Coach Laura Farrell, whose team is 19-10 overall and ranked in the state in Class D. “We had very few in the first set, then in the second it started with the hitting errors and kind of worked its way through the rest of the stats. It was completely mental. It’s something we have to work on.”Price led the Crusaders with 12 kills. She is about 100 away from reaching the 1,000 kill mark for her varsity career. She also served four aces and contributed defensively with 16 digs.Amelia Heminger had 27 assists for MCC while Calvin’Nae Simmons contributed eight kills. Thank you!

Cameroun in sixth Africa Cup of Nations final

first_imgCameroun reached their sixth Africa Cup of Nations final by dismissing hosts Ghana in a tightly-contested game.Geremi hit the bar in the first half for Cameroun, but the Indomitable Lions barely threatened before substitute Alain Nkong slotted in on 71 minutes.In the dying minutes Junior Agogo missed one of Ghana’s best chances, putting a free header over the bar.Cameroun defender Andre Bikey was sent off in the 90th minute for pushing a medical official to the ground.Mexico-based Nkong, who prior to this tournament had last played for Cameroun in the qualifiers for the 2002 World Cup, scored eight minutes after coming on.Nkong’s only other appearance at the tournament so far was in a group game against Zambia, when he also came on as a second-half substitute.The goal came completely against the run of play, and was Cameroun’s first chance of the second half. In a three-man move they swept away on the break, Jean Epalle laying the ball back to Samuel Eto’o, who passed superbly to Nkong in the penalty area.Ghana had the better of the play overall, but Cameroun were resolute in defence, where Rigobert Song had a great game.In hot, humid conditions, the first half was scrappy and cagey, with very little goalmouth action, largely due to poor passing.Eric Addo wasted a chance to put Ghana ahead in the fifth minute.With a free-kick drifting into the penalty area, Addo moved in for a header, but he failed to connect with the ball. In the 21st minute Achille Emana cracked a half-volley just over the bar, and Cameroun had another chance on 38 minutes when Geremi took a free-kick from 40 yards.The shot seemed to be heading over, but it dipped down and hit the top of the bar, with goalkeeper Richard Kingson nowhere near.Despite vociferous support from a colourful home crowd, Ghana found it difficult to push forward with purpose.The Black Stars midfield lacked flair, with Michael Essien constrained to a defensive role, where he was filling in for suspended captain John Mensah.The tempo of the game increased towards the hour mark, with Ghana in the ascendancy. Anthony Annan came close with a 25-yard shot, and John Paintsil headed a Sulley Muntari corner wide.But the pressure did not result in goals, and Nkong went on to put Cameroun ahead.Seven minutes after the goal, Carlos Kameni made a crucial save for Cameroun, coming off his line to win the ball from Agogo, who was running at goal.With Agogo heading over the bar on 81 minutes, time was fast running out for the hosts, and there was to be no comeback.Many Ghana players were in tears after the final whistle, as their Nations Cup dreams were shattered. Bikey’s red card came in a bizarre incident, when the medical team were attending to a player on the pitch.The defender pushed one of the medics over, and will be suspended for Sunday’s final.Cameroun are seeking a record-equalling fifth title, having won the tournament in 1984, 1988, 2000 and 2002.Source: BBClast_img read more
